We’ve just welcomed our latest tenant to our Pacific House offices on the Sovereign Harbour Innovation Park in Eastbourne – car and van leasing firm 1st Choice Vehicle Finance.

The company was established in 2006 and has become a prominent business in the UK’s vehicle leasing field.

With a six-strong team, 1st Choice Vehicle Finance leases cars and vans for personal use as well as arranging leasing deals for business clients. The firm prides itself on its strong relationships with major finance companies, its policy of charging no admin fees and its 4.9 out of 5 rating on TrustPilot.

The company’s most popular leasing deal is currently for the MINI Electric.


1st Choice Vehicle Finance has been based for the last five years on Harvington Business Park in the Hampden Park outskirts of Eastbourne. With its property lease there due to expire, it decided it wanted to move to offices that would provide a more professional working environment.

Neill Cole, Director of 1st Choice Vehicle Finance, said:

“We’ve been growing steadily over recent years and felt the time was right to move from our industrial estate premises to more corporate-style offices.

Our staff are all based in or near Eastbourne, so it made sense to look at options in the local area. Pacific House stood out as the best bet for us because of the highly professional feel of its offices, which is giving us a great new working environment. Convenient parking is another big plus.

Our business faces many opportunities – not least the rise of hybrid, electric and fuel cell vehicles, and the tax breaks that make them attractive options. We’re looking forward to continuing our expansion path from our new base in Pacific House.”

In addition to Pacific House, the Sovereign Harbour Innovation Park has sites which can accommodate further premises up to 80,000 sq ft. Companies can commission us to develop bespoke freehold or leasehold properties for them or can buy serviced sites to create their own.
